News and Updates

Welcome, Nudinyms!

Hello everyone!

We've started a few recent updates with this but: we are here with exciting news once more!

We recently began working with Lighterium and 0alacrity to bring Nudinyms into the Realm of Lyth, in a similar fashion to the recent merges with Symph Pond and Astral Story. Today we are here to announce that Nudinyms are now officially permanent residents of Lyth!

As with previous merges, this means a couple things:

Nudinyms' Masterlist is being merged into our existing Masterlist. If you own a Nudinym, they will be added to your Lyth account and they will be playable in all things, just as other antecedents are!

Nudinyms' community will be merged in with our own -- please give them a warm welcome!

And we will be able to utilize many of Nudinyms' ARPG concepts for upcoming game features. They've got a lot of cool ideas and we've been busily working away at implementation (while still working on some other things we have had on the docket through January).

If you were a member of Nudinyms prior to the merge, we will be working on inventory transfers in the coming days. For accounts that have already linked site and DeviantArt together, we will work through and award items and currency. If you haven't yet linked to DeviantArt, you can do so and we will transfer your inventory at that time (as we have done with Symphonies).

Jelly, Nudinyms' previous currency, will be converted to Loonoles at a 1:1 ratio.
Most items will be transferred over directly, though a couple cases may be receiving a name change.

And finally, an achievement will be rewarded to those who owned a Nudinym or had an inventory and participation in the Nudinym ARPG prior to the merge.

One other adjustment coming with this update is a change to items previously categorized as “Trinkets.” Trinkets (or “Treasures”) were a collectible feature carried over from Astral Story. We have decided that we would rather focus on pets, badges, and passports as the primary collectibles for individual Lythians. Thus we will be removing currently attached Trinkets from Lythians (they won’t disappear; they’ll go into your inventory!) and changing their item type to be “Ingredients” which will be used in the upcoming crafting feature.

Thank you to everyone for reading and we look forward to a future with these sociable sea kids in our world!

Please go here to read their announcement!

Welcome, Astral Story!

Hello, everyone!
January has been a busy month and it’s time for a new announcement.
Please welcome Astral Story and its denizens!

✦ Astral Integration

Astral Story was actually a project that I (Jack) had worked on throughout 2019, and then continued simultaneously alongside Lyth for a while. Unfortunately, running two games stretched me a bit too thin, and after the success of the Lyth merge, I decided (with the help of Lyth’s team) to merge Astral Story into the Realm of Lyth!

Similar to the Symph Pond merger earlier this year, Astral Story’s species and concepts are being absorbed completely into Lyth, so you’ll be seeing some new faces and features thanks to this! We expect this to mostly be a lot of additions to Lyth, same as it was with the Symph merger, and I’m excited to move forward with even more cool species to play with! Astral Story species will gain the ability to take part in any aspect of Lyth that any of our other playable species can.

Here's the six new Astrals, who will now be resident Lythians:

If you had an Astral Story account, we will also be merging those into Lyth, so you will be able to redeem and keep earned things on your Realm of Lyth account! We hope to once again fully integrate this new community with the Lythian community, so please give the Astral Story folks a warm welcome as well!

✦ Currency Changes

The biggest alteration happening along with this is currency changes. With these merges and a re-evaluation of our many currencies, we have reached the decision to merge all currencies into one: Loonoles. While we may have other event/specific currencies in the future, we feel that one currency for all primary shops and functions will be less confusing and allow us to focus less on balancing that section of the game, so we can put more of our efforts into making other new features.

To facilitate this, the following currency will be changed to Loonoles at the following rates:

All Lyth Currencies 1:1 Loonoles (1 any currency = 1 Loonole)
That'd be Carashean, Colozian, Ladarka, Mordial, Pippik, Loy, Moyn, Myur, Wreyn, Wyar, and Zeyl.
Marbles 1:1 Loonoles (1 Marble = 1 Loonole)
Dust (Astral Story’s currency) 5:1 Loonoles (5 Dust = 1 Loonoles)

Gems are NOT being changed, as these were purchased with USD.
We are still working on the best method of releasing paid currency perks for those with this currency.

Our plan from here is to adjust the amount earned from various art activities, as well as potentially shop prices, to try and ensure a stable economy, and better equality for currency-earning between artistic methods moving forward.

✦✦✦

I am very excited to work on all of the new things coming to Lyth, and hope you all are excited to see them as well!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please join our Discord for live assistance~

Welcome, Symph Pond!

Hello everyone! We’ve got an exciting announcement today regarding a species you might be familiar with from the past: Symphonies!

We have been speaking with Bun and Sol, the creator-owners of Symphonies (and Lilipeeps) regarding options to bring Symphs back into the world of Lyth. The ultimate result of this is they have generously offered to allow myself (Jackalune) to acquire Symphonies with the intention of Realm of Lyth completely absorbing the world and species and merging the two into one game. I'm absolutely stoked to have this opportunity to bring even more content to a larger community and help grow the world of Lyth and Symphonies together!

For existing Lyth concepts, not much is changing. It's primarily a lot of additions! The intention is to merge in some of the existing Symphony lore, and add on their island continent (Igroven) to our map as an explorable location (where you can use the Symphony currency in their shops!). We would also like to bring in some of their quests and concepts, such as Notes (baby Symphs), and pets (which will be a type of collectible that you can attach to ANY Lythian!).

Symphonies will also be able to take part in any aspect of Lyth that any of our other playable species can. We intend to implement a capturable egg for them so that you can get a free MYO (just like you can an Onini or Shecean, for example). If you already have a Symphony/Lilipeep or Symph inventory, we will also be merging those into Lyth, so you will be able to redeem and keep those on your Realm of Lyth account!

Additionally, our hope is to fully integrate the Symphony community with the Lythian community so please give them a warm welcome! We also have extended the opportunity for their staff and guest artists to stay on with us if they would like, so you may see some new faces in our staff team.

I am super excited to work on merging the world of Symphonies with Lyth and cannot wait to see what cool stories we can come up with in the future!

You can also read their post here, with further information on how Symphony species and inventories will be adjusted for Lyth: "IMPORTANT NEWS :: About the future of the Species "

Site Inventory Transfers/Redeems!

Hello! We are excited to finally open up the opportunity to transfer over your inventories (and collectible creatures, and other earnings) from their DeviantArt journal tracker form, and into the site inventory form!

If you have an existing player and/or Lythian tracker from before the site was created, please comment on the DeviantArt journal linked here!

If you did not play at that point or did not have an old tracker, you do NOT need to do anything! The old trackers will no longer be required, as all inventories will be kept on-site.
